We are a recognised leader in education, training and business solutions, offering a wide range of courses that benefit from active engagement with regional, national and international industry - giving students the best possible introduction to modern engineering.
Our high-quality programmes combined with industry engagement have earned the School accreditation by world-leading professional bodies, such as the Institute of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
Well-equipped laboratories enhance our students' educational experience, providing a bridge between theoretical learning and hands-on teaching to prepare them for a career in industry.
Collaborating with industry
Collaboration with industry is at the heart of our teaching, enabling us to keep our courses relevant and up-to-date – and putting our students in prime position for industrial placements, opportunities to contribute to real-life projects, and career opportunities.
Courses and partnerships
Undergraduate courses at the School of EDMS have been designed with an emphasis on their application in a business context.
Courses are tailored to meet the needs of employers through partnerships with professional bodies and industry. For example, each new programme is approved, or existing programmes re-approved, by a panel that includes a representative from a relevant industry or professional body.
Sandwich Degree courses also offer students the perfect opportunity to work in industry and develop new skills as part of their course, as well as gaining real experience in a working environment.
Our academics have worked alongside small, medium and large companies and bring to the table expertise from within the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, ICT, environmental and health sectors.
Discover excellent research resources
We already significantly support both small automotive suppliers and global corporations, with our undergraduate and postgraduate students involved in practical research for many engineering and automotive businesses.
